Zonal Overview 2013

It's time to tackle the zonals again. This is partly because 2013 Is a Zonal Year and partly because I haven't touched the subject for almost a year. My first action was to recreate the table I created four years ago in Zonal Overview.

Although the format of the updated table, shown below, is substantially the same as the previous version, there is one important difference: the cycle numbering I use to keep the data together differs for 1997 and after (see Zonals, Current Cycles, and GM Kamsky for the reason I did this).

Just as I did the last time I created the table, I'll step through it methodically to investigate the anomalies, fix those that are errors, and document those that are the result of valid reasons.
